Impermanent Sand Paintings by Andres Amador San Francisco-area landscape artist Andreas Amador etches massive sand drawings onto beaches during full moons when his canvas reaches its largest potential. Using only a rake and often several helpers the geometric and organic shapes are slowly carved into the sand, often interacting with the physical topography like the stones in a zen garden. The works exist for only a few moments, just long enough to snap a few photographs before being completely engulfed by the encroaching tide. Amador has also collaborated on a number of killer marriage proposals, the question popped as part of his elaborate drawings viewable from an elevated distance.

Creative Inspiration: Process & Materials Today’s dose of creative inspiration comes from the latest exhibit over in Gallery 543 at the Navy Yard. The title, “Finished exploration of process and material to find special finishes and fixtures for future projects,” is a bit of a mouthful – but it sums up the array of materials and patterns that grace the walls as we walk to our cafeteria each day. I can’t get enough of all the different textures and patterns in this exhibit , which is the work of the UO Store Design Build & Environment teams. From the paint spattered table to the plywood god’s eyes, it’s a fascinating way to look at materials we see every day in a new way. It’s full of unique home décor ideas too! Fuel your mind with more creative inspiration and home décor ideas

Man on wire: The story of Philippe Petit Standing alongside Yung Rizzle last night, faced with the question of what to watch, Russ’ recommendation of Man On Wire came to mind. Not to be confused with Denzel Washington’s 2004 action drama Man on Fire , Man on Wire tells the tale of Philippe Petit, a French high-rope artist whom in 1974 gained global notoriety for walking across the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on a wire. Having seen the towers in a magazine six years before, walking the across quickly became Petit’s dream and obsession. Studying nearly every facet of the towers, Petit built a team of supporters to help him infiltrate, scale and walk the towers. Considered by many as the “artistic crime of the century,” Man on Wire is the story of Petit’s extraordinary pursuit to the top of the World Trade Center.
